If you happen to have a load constraint for your deliveries, you may enter them in the vehicle capacity of your stops and vehicles for planning and routing.
There are 3 kinds of load constraints (Weight, Volume, Seating) that may be entered for both the vehicles and stops.
In the following example, a vehicle is given a weight capacity of 10. Several stops with varying Weight Loads were created for planning and routing. The total Weight Load for each respective runs was within the weight capacity defined for the vehicle of 10.
How To Set Up
Step 1: Navigate to Settings > Vehicles.
Step 2: Click on Add or Edit Vehicle.
Step 3: Enter the data under Capacity into the fields > Save.
Note that the weight, volume and seating capacity are arbitrary units of measurement, taking only integers (whole numbers).
For example, you may choose to define the Weight in kg, pounds, or tonnes; the Volume as liters, cubic meters, or gallons; and the Seating as number of people, boxes, or cartons.
How To Use
When you are adding a stop. manually enter the value into the Weight Load field.
For importing of CSV into ElasticRoute, create a list of stops with the Weight Load header.
